FIDO (prepaid) simply terminates an ongoing call when the remaining balance (during that call) drops to zero.
While technically and legally defensible, this is lousy customer relations work! FIDO should - at the very least - send a distinctive beep as a reminder but then allow another two or three minutes for the customer to complete the call.
I can definitely understand the inconvenience but a Prepaid balance can't be negative. If you'd like, you can always switch to a monthly services
You also have the option of taking a prepaid monthly plan. Of course, if your balance is less than $1, you won't be able to use your plan and the line would cut off if you go over your minutes but the balance isn't high enough to cover your over usage.
Hope this helps!
Not at all helpful. I am well aware of all FIDO plans.
The point is: FIDO is inconsiderate when cutting calls in mid-sentence - for whatever reason.
Good customer service wouyld suggest a "warning beep" folowed by another 30 (?) seconds talk time to complete the call.
Maybe FIDO is not interested in prepaid customers any more - even though they probnably are among the most profitable?
